Ex-professional female footie star turns erotic dancer to make ends meetOctober 22nd, 2008 - 4:56 pm ICT by ANI
Berlin, Oct 22 (ANI): Eva Roob, an ex-professional womens football player, became an erotic dancer after she found that she could not make ends meet with her meagre football salary.
Roob, who played for Nurnberg in the German second division, will be appearing at Germany’’s biggest erotic trade fair, Venus 2008, in Berlin, and take part in the beauty competition.
The 23-year-olds football career began in 2001, and she was even allowed to skip school to keep her place in the team, but things did not work out well for the midfielder, who goes by the stage name Samira Summer.
Unfortunately, I couldnt make ends meet on my football salary, Bild.com quoted her as saying.
I had to supplement my income with other types of work, she said.
In order to survive, Roob took up erotic dancing at company parties and events or in bars, or posing for sexy photos.
I would come home from my erotic gigs at around five in the morning, then Id have to be on the pitch by 10am. That was really stressful, she explained.
Besides her personal troubles, Roob was also facing problems with her fellow footballers.
In the changing rooms, my team-mates were whispering about me. And I began to realise that I couldnt do two such demanding jobs. I had to choose, she said.
I really enjoyed playing football. But my new job is far, far more exciting, she added. (ANI)
